Dear Marfa based artists and artists who love Marfa and her community.. Please create and donate a small artwork or 2 for this year's Dersu Collective Art Benefit. We need you!
DERSU COLLECTIVE SHOW DATE: Friday April 27th at 6PM
LOCATION: the Marfa Book Company as is tradition.
PROJECT: This year ALL proceeds raised by the DC Art Benefit will go to support the:
Marfa Education Foundation Teacher Grant Program and the 4-H Veterinary Sciences Program
Last year for the DC show we had a record 50 local artists who contributed a total of 101 artworks which all sold and we raising over $6,000. It was awesome. With the funds raised, over the summer we created a beautiful new playground for the youngest at MISD, which is being enjoyed by our local kids, our future generation, every day. If we can create a great show again, with your heartfelt dedication to Marfa and your artwork, we can definitely support the great MEF and 4-H programs in great ways.
HOW: If we each contribute at least one small scale artwork for the show.
If YOU: care about Marfa and our kids having what they need, and if you care about effective activism for our local community, YOU and your GREAT ARTWORK can make a TRULY POSITIVE CONCRETE CHANGE for MARFA YOUTH.
We can make this happen. WE CAN DO THIS.
